    Hi all,

    I just reformatted and did a clean install of Win98 SE on my comp., everything is running smoothly so far (knock on wood). I just went to download and install AVG Free here:


    I left it downloading while away from the comp. (since it takes so long on dial-up!), and when I returned, I had an error mssg "Error: Some installation files are corrupt. Please download a fresh copy and retry the installation". I clicked ok, Then I got an AVG Window with this:

    Extracting licese_us.txt
    Extracting avgsetup.exe
    Extracting sporder.dll
    Extracting files.dat
    CRC failed in files.dat
    Unexpected end of archive

    And the destination folder is "C:\WINDOWS\TEMP\RarSFX0

    When I click on the link to download AVG again, I get the same error message, so I deleted the above Windows temp folder. Then I searched for the above files, and they still appear in the temp folder on my system, so I deleted them individually, but that still didn't work. Every time I try and download AVG, I still get the error message about corrupt files. Does anyone know how to fix this so I can get AVG free to download and install? I have no idea! Thanks in advance for any replies! :)

    (and I thought the reformat/clean install was the hard part! lol):p
